Workplace Options Introduces Adapt, an Organisational Resilience Tool to Assess the Impact of Workforce Wellbeing and Performance

Workplace Options announced the launch of its Adapt organisational resilience questionnaire to help organisations assess the impact of COVID-19 on workforce wellbeing and performance as they take steps toward reopening.

The COVID-19 pandemic has tested the limits of many organisations’ stress levels and resilience, as employees and managers deal with uncertainty. With reopening underway at different rates and constraints in countries and communities across the world, that resilience will continue to be tested.

“Organisations need a pulse on the human response to stress and the effect it has on employee mental health as they pivot in this changing environment,” says Alan King, President and Chief Executive Officer at Workplace Options. “As organisations work to navigate a new course and operate post quarantine, they can’t lose sight of the needs of their people. In the face of unprecedented change and uncertainty against the backdrop of a frightening and largely unknown disease, leaders can’t assume that their people are eager or even willing instead of able to follow a new path.”

The Adapt organisational resilience questionnaire is the first element of the new offering. The questionnaire — built on scientifically validated resilience and stress scales — is designed to measure employee and management experiences during the quarantine stage of the COVID-19 pandemic and readiness for future changes. The questionnaire is simple, short, secure, easy to access and will be available in multiple languages. It can be completed on a computer, tablet, or smartphone in about seven minutes.

Once employees and managers have completed the questionnaire, the data is compiled in a comprehensive report with specific recommended actions for organisations relating to employee engagement and health.

The Adapt questionnaire and comprehensive report provides employers insight into organisational issues that might otherwise be hidden. It measures the prevalence of stress and trauma in the workforce, work-life priorities, attitudes toward commuting and working from home, the experience of teamwork during the period of quarantine, and concerns about risk from infection. The information can be used in forming strategies, implementing new support programmes, and planning communications. The result of taking a pulse assists in creating an environment where employees feel connected and safe as they enter a new work world.

The Adapt questionnaire and comprehensive report are affordable, even for smaller organisations. The tool can be paired with additional consultation from Workplace Options, including support programmes, training for managers or employees, and policy development. As a full-service employee wellbeing provider, Workplace Options offers a wide range of resilience-building services that can be delivered virtually to managers and employees.
